                              About: I have lived and been a realtor in this area for longer than I care to remember, and we have another smaller property nearby which I have enjoyed renting out to guests from every state in America and all around the world for the last few years. When I first saw this home in very poor condition, I knew it could be transformed into a great place to accommodate larger family groups and the guests we could not accommodate at the other property. It was a labor of love and we are thrilled to now welcome our return guests and new guests alike to our new property, and do our best to make their stay a memorable one.

                              Why Studio City:
                              I love Studio City, Valley Village where I have lived and worked for the last 30 plus years. I had a whole storage space full of my own furniture when I sold my house and moved in with Chris, the love of my life, so we bought a duplex to rent out as furnished units, but I was unable to rent it long term as prospective tenants had all their own furniture and then I stumbled on vacation rentals and have never looked back. Thank you VRBO !!!!
